The Echo Dot has a stylish charcoal fabric design and is compatible with a range of music streaming services, including Amazon Music, Apple Music and Spotify. 

There’s also a Microphone Off button that electronically disconnects the mic for additional privacy. 

We gave the Echo Dot (3rd Gen) an impressive 4.5/5 stars in our review, praising its improved design and audio over previous models. 

“The Amazon Echo Dot (3rd Gen) as a vast improvement on the originals, even though it costs exactly the same”, wrote Home Technology Editor David Ludlow. 

“The new finish looks fantastic and the new Echo Dot is a device that you’d happily put out on show. Audio has been dramatically improved, too, both in terms of quality and loudness, which makes Alexa easier to understand and means that the odd bit of music or radio is a possibility. If you’re looking to put Alexa in more rooms, then this is the device to buy”.
